Vaughn: Keep Gay Joke in Movie

Anderson Cooper and GLAAD may not be fan of the gay joke in the upcoming film The Dilemma, but star Vince Vaughn is.

After Cooper and GLAAD complained about the film's gay reference — Vaughn, as the star, calls electric cars "gay" — Universal removed the joke from the movie's trailer. It remains to be seen whether the joke will remain in the final cut of the film, but Vaughn hopes it does.

"Let me add my voice of support to the people outraged by the bullying and persecution of people for their differences, whatever those differences may be," the actor was quoted as saying on Thursday. "Comedy and joking about our differences breaks tension and brings us together. Drawing dividing lines over what we can and cannot joke about does exactly that; it divides us. Most importantly, where does it stop?"

such poor judgment here... it wasn't even a "joke", it was a slur and the dumbest of slurs at that. but i digress: i love it when celebrities do the whole foot-in-mouth thing.
